Tri-color Cat Bread


I bought a lot of baking pan in the last 3 months ^^.


Well, I know even we don't have every style or size of them, we're still able to create many kinds of baked goods. 
But having them is better, right? haha.

From all of the new baking pans, one of the pan, that I really love is the cake bread pan. That you will get a lovely cat face bread from the pan. 

I saw this kind of bread from many Japanese bakeries and each time I wanted to have it more and more ^^".
Finally, I HAD TO BUY IT!!!!!!!

I have to say that this kind of pan is quite expensive (you can find a smaller one for a cheaper price), as you can make only bread (anyway the variations of the bread are up to you) and all of them will be cat face, haha. But if you love cats you will be happy.

After getting the pan, a new problem for me was the amount of the dough as the size of the pan was harder to calculate than the simple loaf pan.

Using too much dough, your bread will be very heavy, when too little dough your bread won't become a cat ^^".
Finally, I got the right amount, this pan requires almost the same amount of dough as the 1000g lid sandwich pan.

But I didn't want a white cat, so I made tri-color bread instead of the plain one.
The lighter color dough is a coffee flavour and the dark brown color is cocoa.

Actually, for these 2 colors, you can make them larger or smaller, it's up to you.
I draw my bread with chocolate (to make it look like a cat, haha) but you can serve it plain if you want.
